I've stayed here previously, and I am happy with my most recent visit. The price is very reasonable, and I am surprised at some of the bad reviews. You really can't expect to come to Kauai and get a cheap room with all the luxuries! If luxury is what you need, you should be ready to pay more. This is... More

We stayed at this resort for 5 nights. The front desk staff was very warm and welcoming. The resort grounds were beautiful and well maintained. The room we stayed in was very clean and well kept. The kitchen was newer, well stocked and had all the appliances we needed. It did not have air conditioning, which we were initially concerned... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days. Although we were very happy to be near Poipu beach which is fantastic, we experienced many issues with this resort. Let's leave out the outdated style. First of all, there is no air-conditioning!! We could not enjoy not even a single night of sleep. Second, the day we arrived there was a... More

Hawaii is currently going through a heat wave and the resort has no air conditioning. Not their fault but before you book, check the weather forecast. Roosters and chickens are everywhere and the rooster outside our unit starting crowing at 4:15 every morning. Does not make for a restful holiday. There were 12 of us in our party with five... More

Dear Leroy W., Thank you for your review. We are experiencing an unusually hot summer without our normal cooling tradewinds. As for the chickens, our guests either hate them or love them. They are part of the island ambiance. Situated on 35 acres, our resort is definitely spread out. It is unfortunate we could not accommodate your your party closer... More

So my parents were very kind to pay for a vacation for my family to Kauai, however, that meant they made all of the reservations. We are fairly picky about where we stay, and needless to say, I would not have chosen this location had we been paying for it. The best part of it by far is that the... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay, however, I am not sure why this review shows that you stayed with Castle Resorts. It should have shown Outrigger, as they do not provide daily maid service, which Castle does. I hope that TA fixes this issue, as your review does not reflect the excellent service that my company provides... More

Kaihuna Plantation by Outrigger has a lovely location on Poi'pu. The grounds are gorgeous, the beach beautiful (though a little rough for my five year old). Beach chairs and towels are easy to come by and there's lots of space. Poi'pu is noticeably less crowded than Maui which we liked. The front desk staff was very pleasant and Bart the... More

Dear adorchien, Thank you for the review. We apologize that the the faulty screens caused a damper on your vacation. Hopefully, your son has fully recovered from all his bug bites. It sounds like it could have been the perfect vacation in the perfect location minus the mosquitos. We hope that you will give us another chance at Kiahuna Plantation... More

Things started off very nice. Unfortunately, we had the pleasure of finding cockroaches in the unit and in my daughter's bed. Since the Owner lives in CA, we immediately called the Front Desk. Unfortunately, no one answered since it was in the evening. We left a message for the GM and never received a return call. We also had two... More

This was my first trip to Kauai. I did not do enough research to determine the best part of the island on which to stay. However, I was very fortunate and booked my stay at the Kiahuna Plantation Resort. I had a one bedroom condo that was more than adequately furnished. Cooked almost all my breakfasts and a few dinners... More

The Kiahuna Plantation consists of two or three story buildings with condo's on the first or second floor. Most units are owned by individuals, so even if there are decorating differences for each unit, the layouts are basically the same. One side is managed by Outrigger and the other by Castle Resorts. If you reserve through Outrigger you may not... More

Mahalo for choosing Castle Resorts & Hotels! We appreciate your business. Just a small comment for anyone reading this that might not be familiar with our beautiful property. The review states "one side is managed by Castle and the other side by Outrigger". While is is correct that both companies operate on site, the units each manages are scattered around... More

We stayed here 3 nights in June. Beautiful grounds, scenery, and right on the beach. However, the condo we stayed in had no AC, and the hideabed was terrible. The decor is showing its age. However, the location is great- literally on the beach. Well managed, good welcome even though late at night.

Dear carped8ta, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Our beach, grounds and service are what makes Kiahuna so special. Unfortunately, there is no AC. There are only a handful of days that we we wish we had that. Normally, the tradewinds keep everything cool. We continue to try to encourage our owners to keep their units... More
